07 Dec Testing Alaska: an incredible trip
If you go to Alaska, it is recommended to have an active adventure instead of visiting some places by bus, and that’s all. You can feel the spirit of this awesome state only by experiencing the encounter with the unspoiled nature.
The largest mountain in North America, Mount McKinley, located in spectacular Denali National Park offers unsurpassed experiences for hikers and backcountry enthusiasts. Take part in a McKinley discovery tour, and your memories of the magnificent scenery will last a lifetime. You can explore Mt. McKinley and the other magnificent peaks of the Alaska Range with flightseeing tours, as well. You can land on a glacier by helicopter and go for a glacier trek.
There are a variety of different tour types, decide which one fits for you the most. Tours contain only established lodging and are quite comfortable. Tours are the most accessible trips and the most popular. Tour itineraries visit many of the same delightful locations as the Adventures, but with a greater emphasis on amenities, and are suitable for all ages. They don’t require a great degree of physical conditioning, though walking is included, with some hiking optional.
Adventures include some camping – often on our own secluded properties – sometimes mixed with nights in comfortable accommodations. This type is a good choice for those who would like to experience wilder circumstances and need more adrenalin rush. Adventures are designed for beginners but do require a moderate degree of fitness.
All skiing, rafting and kayaking expeditions are for adrenalin lovers. Flowing north through the heart of the Alaska Range, the Nenana River is the most popular whitewater river in Alaska. Sea kayak trips near Kenai Fjords are also very popular. During wintertime, you can take part in a guided backcountry snowmobile tour and dogsled tour or a fantastic glacier tour. Or have you ever experienced the thrill of climbing a shimmering ice wall? If you are interested in black bears or grizzly bears, you should try some bear viewing adventure. But moose, caribou, dall sheep, mountain goat, eagle, wolf are also can be seen.
As for clothing, there are two basic rules to observe: staying warm and staying dry. So get some waterproof and warm clothes & boots and you’ll be o.k
